A nervous day awaits Athens residents as public transport on February 2 will be shut completely, including rail, metro, buses, trams and trolleys. A massive protest has been organised on the streets of central Athens, although Greek authorities have branded the march as illegal, reports from Greece said.
To make matters worse, employees and doctors from the state social security fund IKA are also on strike, and have besieged the Greek health ministry. They warned that their actions will continue.
Greek pharmacists will also strike, on February 4, when pharmacies will be closed because the governments wants to “liberalise their sector”.
